    • Planet Janet Rules   07/07/2015

      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

    Time frame nor member activity invalidates the validity of the poll or public opinion. Being that both albums have had more than two decades to age, I bet if you make the same thread today the results would be the same. 

    Both invalidates it, people can change their mind (come to their senses)....its 6 years....2 would be enough tp make it useless. Even if more misguided members overtook a recent poll, it doesn't take away from the fact that janet. simply put as a whole aged much better, despite the cohesiveness of Control, janet gives way more variety, insight to her, her skills as a writer & producer. Cohesion doesnt make a album good, great songs do, and janet wins in that, it provides a variety of great songs. Control is a great starting point, but its seriously the weakest link in the albums of the JanJamLewis 86-01 work.

    So tough to quantify there, b/c as bodies of work, Control and Janet. had such different goals.  Control is basically a shocker... I mean club banger after club banger each in a row.  It's about the sound, and the lyrics, with everything to the hilt and it's not until the last couple of tracks that Janet even cracks the armor.  

    The goals for Janet. are almost the opposite perspective.  Even the banger tracks are couched with playful, coquettish interludes.  The way a song like Any Time Any Place just slow jams with barely a wisp of the vocals.  And of course those classic atmospheric sounds.  Just... different.  

    Control is more cohesive b/c they don't really stray from the the formula too much.  It works, it establishes the identity Janet needed at the time.  

    Janet. is piece designed to stretch the full range of emotion. Among the two I prefer Control, but ATAP is one of my favorite songs... EVER.  

    Simply why Control is the better album. Plus the concept of control is a bit more developed than that of janet.

    If WITOY was released today, it would still sound fresh. :tear:

    Legend.

    It wouldn't. :rolleyes:

    I prefer Janet with less and more natural make up. They contour her too much. It makes her look like she just had some work done & naturally she looks younger & just all around pretty. Her cheekbones are naturally high but they make them look crafted. 

    She's a beautiful woman but yea that's just part of the show. I get stage make up is more dramatic, but sometimes the make up does her no justice. 

    I agree! The lady is so beautiful she doesn't need any make up at all! But like you said, it's part of the show...

    That alone doesn't get you 180 million.  He would have to have investments and production money coming in.  He can probably do some STD endorsement deals though pay some of these gals off.

    He's been collecting Royalties since 1994. Has a cologne. He owns a NBA team the Cleveland Cavaliers. He has a school supply line. An endorsement with MasterCard. Signed Justin Bieber and co-owns Tidal. He's done plenty of movies.

    I loved her make up and hair on the Unbreakable Tour.  the bright color made her stand out on stage (especially with her and all the dancers wearing black).  Wondering if she'll stay with it for SOTW or change it up.  

    I wasn’t a fan of her brown eye brows (normally black). She changed them after I said that 👀

    they don't have to push their local policies we just need to hear their voices. Winning the White House comes down to the electoral college so the Dems right now need to get their base in each state hyped up. Trump is going around having campaign rallies the Dems need to do the same.  

    I disagree there.  Trump was campaigning for 2020 2 months in ffs.  That's just crazy.  Dems do need to be more aggressive regarding showing policy differences and their economic plans.  Getting strong electable candidates that can push the message and give them support.

    I'm being extra petty reading the epic dragging of Caitlyn jenner on Twitter.  gay community tried to tell that bitch Trump wasn't shit.  Still voted for and supported his ass right up until he hit HER issue.  That's what happens when other minorities don't support each other.  Eventually
